The Golden Path
There are many views about the extent of our free agency in this life, some believing we have no real choice and are just fulfilling a pre-determined destiny (Calvinism), and others that there is no pre-destiny and that all we do is the result of our free choice. The reality of our mortal probation is more complex, as this revelation indicates. The main purpose of life is salvation, and just as there are many different kinds of food that will sustain us, there are many ways we can work it out in the things we do. The omniscient God, knowing in advance the choices every soul will make, has worked out a divine plan whereby wecan all seek this salvation simultaneously. Those who follow the best path -- the Golden Path -- will be directed through one set of life's circumstances, whereas those who choose lesser paths will be directed through other circumstances. By repenting we can change paths at will, but because salvation is also a collective affair, our decisions often affecting many other people, we must sometimes await the correct time and season to do so. All is ordered according to the inscrutible justice and mercy of God [Burpham, Surrey, England].
1. Thou hast asked Me, My son, concerning the choices that a soul must make in life, whether there be one course or many which he may walk.
2. Verily, verily, I say unto thee that there are many courses that a man or woman may walk, and though there is a best course, none save the Son of Man have walked it, for all fall into sin, yea, every one.
3. Each wrong choice that a man maketh taketh him off the golden path and onto paths grown with weeds and covered with stones, which cause him to stumble until he findeth the golden path once more.
4. Man may eat many foods in order to receive his fill, yea, and there are as many kinds as there are birds in the air.
5. All give him life and sustain him in his mortal walk, but some are better than others.
Work out your Salvation
6. Likewise ye should seek and choose what ye do that will cause you to receive Me and multiply your light, that ye might work out your salvation (Phil.2:12).
7. Ye are here only for this, beloved ones, and to this end were ye born.
8. When ye strive after the things of the world ye strive after wind, and frus- trate your own salvation.
We Must Often Choose Without Divine Help
9. It is not expedient that I, the Lord, should command you in all things, else ye would forever remain babes, exercising neither agency nor directing your light toward creative things.
10. Therefore choose ye this day what ye shall do, and do it well, having the glorification of your God as your end. Amen.
